GUI opens new GUI with search results, can't re use original GUI

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've been trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong here... perhaps someone can shed some light on it for me? :)

The program works, and does exactly what I want it to, but when the initial program performs the search, and opens the second GUI, the first window is not usable, and I can't close it / run a new search with it.

I'd like to be able to close the second GUI that opens, without affecting the first GUI.

I'd also like to be able to run another search, and have multiple windows open.

Not sure If I'm doing this right, or if I'm completely off the right track!

Here's my code so far.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
#include <array.au3>   
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

   ; read in the Excel file
   Global $sFilePath1 = @ScriptDir & "\Test.xls" ; directory of file
   Global $datasheet = _ExcelBookOpen($sFilePath1)

   ; Confirm if file exists
      Dim $test1
   
      $test1 = @error
      If @error = 1 Then
          MsgBox(0, "Error!", "Can't open excel object")
          _ExcelBookClose($datasheet)
          Exit
          
      ElseIf @error = 2 Then
          MsgBox(0, "Error!", "File not found")
          Exit
       EndIf
       ; End check

   Global $Input_Sell, $Input_Orderfrom
   Global $sColumn = 1

   $aArray = _ExcelReadSheetToArray($datasheet) ;Reads excel data into the array

   ; input GUI
      $Form1 = GUICreate("Search window", 615, 438, 192, 124)

The wiki has a great tutorial about how to write multi GUI scripts.

If you're going to use 2 GUI's I'd suggest losing the second While loop because it's going to block everything in the first GUI until you close the 2nd GUI. Then you should be using GUIGetMsg(1) to return an array with more information, which is important because it will tell you which GUI it is getting the messages from and you can act on that information to make it so both GUIs are still able to be controlled.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
